Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

His holy day

Representative Text

1 Once again the Sabbath Day is here,
Earth and heav’n again are drawing near,
Mortals now with angel singers raise
To God a hymn of praise.

Gladly addressing Him,
As a Father true and kind,
Thanking and blessing Him,
For the daily gifts we find,
Worship and bring to Him,
As His summons we obey,
Praises we sing to Him,
On His own most holy day.

2 Long ago, this day was set apart,
Chosen by the wise Creator’s art,
By His will, from labor now we cease,
And meet with Him in peace. [Refrain]

3 So we sing to God our Maker blest,
Praise Him on His chosen day of rest,
Strength and hope and wisdom here we seek,
To guide us through the week. [Refrain]
